Former New York Yankees great Andy Petite was honored at the star-studded 12th annual Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation Gala on November 13, 2014 in New York. Torre, who managed Pettitte in New York, founded the Safe at Home Foundation in 2002 with the mission to end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives in the community. Pettitte has been a huge supporter of Torre’s mission over the years.
“You can’t put enough importance on it,” said Pettitte about stopping domestic violence. “There’s a way you’re supposed to treat people and a way you’re supposed to represent yourself. Any time you don’t do that it’s a disappointment, to yourself and your community and your family.”
During the even Torre honored Pettitte for his career on the field and his commitment to the community since his playing days came to an end. He reminisced on their Yankee days and the unbelievable post season appearances he made in the 90’s and 2000’s that led to five world series rings. Pettitte retired in 2013 as a Yankee with 256 wins and a 3.85 career earned run average. During his time in the league he was undoubtedly one of the most dominant pitchers of his era.
